SHOWTIME (8-9 p.m. ET)

In producer Shelley Duvall's latest addition to this series, real-life husband and wife Malcolm McDowell and Mary Steenburgen are the big bad wolf and innocent little girl (who wore red long before Nancy Reagan made it This Year's Color). This production typically has its share of tongue-in-cheek moments. (We see the wolf reading Fang Floss, Eat Right, Feel Better.) Despite such quirks, the hour could use more bite.
